The GigaBridge-enabled PCI expansion system from MAGMA--the newest member of the PLX
Partner Program--features a high-speed backplane with a single PCI bus segment supporting seven full-length PCI slots and delivering speeds up to four times faster than either Gigabit Ethernet or conventional 32-bit, 33MHz PCI.
also announced that designs based on the GBP64 and GBP32 -- the GBP32 is the original, 32-bit member of the GigaBridge family -- presently are underway for a variety of communications and networking applications.
We're honored to have PLX
and the PEX 8548 recognized for innovation by such a respected industry publication as EDN," said Akber Kazmi, product marketing director for PCIe switches at PLX
Adaptive Switch Fabric Architecture, therefore, was designed to eliminate the limitations of PCI ensuring that communications systems are continually operable.
We look forward to working with PLX
on continued delivery of PCI Express enabled enterprise solutions.
As a member of the PXISA, PLX
is providing assurance to designers that they can use interconnect devices from both a consortium vendor and the leading provider of PCI Express switches and bridges, and confidently design those devices into their PXIe-based products," said Krishna Mallampati, PLX
senior product marketing manager and liaison to the PXISA.
presentation will be available through the Investors section of the PLX
Web site at plxtech.
devices have been designed into hundreds of systems in virtually all technology market segments.
The PEX 8548 features the highest lane count, lowest latency and most flexibility of any PCI Express switch, and was, therefore, a complicated device to design," said George Apostol, PLX
vice president of engineering.

Blended into the demonstration's PC was the PLX
PEX 8508 PCIe switch sending high-speed video over CAT7 cable, showing how ExpressLane switches can be implemented to expand PCIe's reach in new cabling schemes.
